LibriVox recording of The Man-Eaters of Tsavo and Other East African Adventures, by J.H. Patterson.
In 1898, during the construction of a river-crossing bridge for the Uganda Railway at the Tsavo River, as many as 135 railway workers were attacked at night, dragged into the wilderness, and devoured by two male lions.
The Man-Eaters of Tsavo is the autobiographical account of Royal Engineer Lt. Col. J. H. Patterson's African adventures. Among them, his hunt for the two man-eating lions.
This book was the basis for the 1996 film The Ghost and the Darkness.
